and is committed to treaties. that's the purview of the united states senate as the senate passed the new-start treaty. all that goes into that negotiation in this particular case, russia, certainly congress has to be involved in that. >> that is very important, senator hagel. i have to tell you there is unease here that may not be in the works. it has been some discussion for some time about private or unilateral or bilateral conversations that congress is not involved in. that's why this was passed. it was just passed. we expect you to comply with that and i take your testimony that you will comply. >>ly comply with all requirements and laws, absolutely. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, senator sessions. senator king? >> senator hagel, one of the first meetings i had when i ran for this office last summer was a group of veterans from world war ii all the way up to afghanistan and iraq. one of the things that came up in that meeting is the issue of employability and employment of recent veterans. the suggestion was made that the army and the military has recruiters, people who h
's intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> well, why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> sir, do you agree it's provocative statement. i can't think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate or the congress than what you said. name one dumb thing we have been goaded in to do because of the pressure of the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the term nlg. >> you said back then it makes us do dumb things. you can't name one senator intimidated. now give me one example of the dumb things we're pressured to do up here. >> we were talking in that interview about the middle east. about positions. about israel. >> now that exchange followed another faceoff earlier today with senator john mccain over the war in iraq. >> will you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since until nam? were you co
in the united states senate. so a friend of mine -- a friend of his told me yesterday that barney's active lobbying for the job may have hurt him. >> oh, that was clearly the first of the reasons. i don't know behind the scenes he may have given a tongue lashing to the governor behind closed doors. >> bill: right. is cowen saying that -- it's clear he is not going to run, right? >> that was one of the prerequisites that the governor laid down on the job, and cowen is very loyal to him. >> bill: so we know ed marky at least at this point is in. what is scott brown going to do? governor or senator? >> well there's scott brown and then really nobody else. >> bill: yeah. >> he's weighing his options. he has been around talking in the private sector see what he could get in terms of salary and deals. he has been through two very tough campaigns in the last several years. he faces another tough campaign here, and when he finishes this campaign in june he has to roll into 2014 where they are going to try to go at him again if he were to win for a full term. that's when kerry's t
, to the united states senate. a longtime member of the senate club. he will be introduced by secretary of state hillary clinton. senator john mccain will also play a role. interesting because mccain has a very similar resume to john kerry but a very different political philosophy. last night with greta van sus traivan susteren he talked about serrie as secretary of indicate. >> reporter: john and i don't agree on a lot of issues but we have a relationship which was forged years ago, and so i have confidence that he will carry out the president's agenda and serve the president. >> reporter: mccain said he would not have selected john kerry to be secretary of state because they obviously have a very different philosophy. he does expect that kerry will be effective in carrying out obama's philosophy. martha: when they make these nominees they know they have some that will be easy, some are more heavy lifting. where does this one fall. >> reporter: john kerry is the least controversial of the ones coming up right now. 50% of independents would and most of the democrats would. if you were senator wo
as united states senator in the interim until that special election. uma: his appointment signals the start of the special election race. so far the only announced candidate is massachusetts congressmanned marquis. steven lynch and former republican seven scott brown have been mentioned as pass candidates. the seat was left vacant by senator kerry's confirmation as the next secretary of state. jon: right now toyota is dealing with another major car recall. rick is live at the breaking news desk with this information. >> reporter: in this involves bad air bags and windshield wipers. toyota is recalling more and million vehicles. the corolla, and the corolla matrix sold in 2003 and 2004. they have air bags that could deploy inadvertently. the bad wipers are on the ix models sold between 2006 and 2012, apparently the wipers don't work in heavy snow. toyota has reclaimed its crown out selling number two gm but recalls have been a problem for the japanese company over the last several years hurting the bottom line and these latest recalls will only add to those problems. toyota says that owners
, a 42-year-old united states senator, and a 60-year old former governor of florida. but do we need another bush? >> jennifer: i know -- 2016 is a long time away, but there was an interview from "60 minutes" -- >> it is never too long for the media. >> jennifer: it is never too long. let's listen to a sound bite of that interview. >> you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. [ laughter ] >> and you are talking about elections four years from now. >> jennifer: i loved that sound bite. but they were laughing so hard. but the idea though of rubio versus clinton or bush versus clinton. that is sort of an interesting dynamic, isn't it? bush might have the gav tas to stand up. if it is hillary clinton the republicans might want to say we got to get jeb bush in. >> republicans have a history of going for the next in line. you look at george bush senior bob dole george bush, jr., they pretty consistently pick the establishment. if they keep their pattern, the tea party has not proven they can win in the big election. so it is the next
-known authority of this body, the united states senate, is likely to be the advise and consent pri provisions. constitution. article 2, section 2, with the advice and consent of the senate the president shall appoint ambassadors and others. and there are about 1, 100 of those that the president appoints. and two years ago and then just last week we streamlined the confirmation process a little bit to narrow the focus on the most important appointees and make it easier to get them confirmed. so those are the checks and balances that the constitution meant to establish. they did that so that we would have liberty from a tyrannical executive branch, which is what the founders were worrying about, and the court is as that i had that the president exceeded that. thertherefore, these two memberf the nlrb should resign immediate lid and pack their bags and go home with our thanks for their hard work despite the fact that the cases they voted on ought to all b be vacated. a new sign needs to go up at the national labor relations board. take down the sign that say, open for business. put up a sign tha
valuable members of the united states senate. so i think the news was not surprising because we knew these days would be coming. but these are two individuals who have contributeded a great deal to the work of the senate. >> i wish we could get a democrat to speak that kindly about a republican when he's not retiring from the senate. let's go, too, on that point he said that the nature of washington, d.c., he kind of cited that. let's go to what we saw with hillary clinton giving testimony up on capitol hill this week about benghazi. there were some heated exchanges. there is no doubt many republicans took this opportunity to really go at senator clinton -- excuse me secretary clinton the best they could and get their shots in. what was your reaction to some of the line of questioning from some of your republican colleagues? for you was it just to be expectsed or did any of is surprise you? >> secretary clinton did such a great job explaining all the issues. it was a horrible tragedy. we all know that. i think secretary clinton really outlined the facts very clearly, showed where the
-deportation and killing the dream act to keep children of undocumented immigrants in the united states. senator dick durbin of illinois is intent on keeping a dream act component as part of a new legislation. >> the dream act is going to be an integral part of comprehensive immigration reform. the dream act will give to these young people the chance that they have been dreaming of, begging for, pleading to give an opportunity. >> i'm sure senator durbin is happy to have his colleagues on board this time around. but when the dream act was voted down in the senate in 2010, one of the no votes was this man, who was up there on the stage today, senator john mccain. another no vote was senator lindsey graham, who is part of this group of eight, who is also a proponent of this new senate plan. these senators see how their votes and attitudes have damaged the republican party in the image business, but the voices of dissent are still out there. >> i don't know that there is any stopping this. it's up to me and fox news. and i don't think fox news is that invested in this. but there is not -- i don't think
in the united states senate, saxby chambliss who got an a-plus rating from the nra and a 100% rating from the national right to life committee, he is being forced out. he is not far right enough. thank goodness former chairman of the republican party and as always a good sport, mr. steele, good to see you. >> it's good to see you, rachel. >> do you think there is really no imprint at all that mitt romney should have left on the republican party? they're just trying to pretend like he was a bad dream. >> well, that's just silly. and the fact of the matter is that mitt romney went through a primary process in which delegates and activists around the country voted overwhelmingly for him. and so to now sit back and say well, there may not be a romney wing of the party, but certainly as our nominee, he did -- he did have some stature. he did leave an imprint and an impression. and you can't whitewash that. you can't just say it didn't happen, it didn't exist. and if we ignore it and pretend it never did, then everything else we do will be better. so it's just silly. and it's just typical crap
in your opinion who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> well, why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> name one dumb thing we've been goaded into doing because of the pressure from the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the terminology. >> what is he trying to do there, peter? i mean, he's trying to bait him it seems to me -- i'll answer my own question -- into saying something against a fellow senator. first of all, if he were to name a fellow senator, that would be the headline tomorrow morning and tonight on the news, it would be mccarthyism. this guy got prodded into voting a way he didn't want to vote because he's worried about some influential people somewhere. what kind -- it was like did you stop beating your wife? it's that kind of question. there's no good answer to that question. >> you're right, it was entirely gotcha. look, the problem here with hagel is that he came into a gun fight with a water pistol. these guys, as you said, were g
to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have a credible democrat who will seek the party's nomination. >> it's interesting that the conservative was afraid that even more conservative republicans may challenge him and he decided time to move on. let's move on ourselves. jeb bush the former florida governor cowrote a piece of the "wall street journal" calling for comprehensive immigration reform among other things, writing this. some tell us makers are calling for piece meal changes such as issuing visas or conferring legal status of immigrants who were brought in as children. congress should avoid such quick ficks and commit itself instead to comprehensive immigrati
respect the prerogatives of the united states senate and the members of congress, you represent the american people, you're the other branch of government, you have the right to know what took place. and i have an obligation commensurate with the, you know, regulations and classifications and privacy and other things at play here, to help you get the answers and we'll do that. i hope we can do it in a noncontentious, appropriate way. >> thank you. could i just mention, i think you would aee with me that every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. so there is, it seems to me, a very strong impetus that we realize that the present policy is not succeeding and to look at other options to prevent what is going on for now 22 months and 60,000 dead. >> but i think you would agree with me that whatever judgments you make, they have to pass the test of whether or not, you do them, they're actually going to make things better. >> absolutely. >> you have to make a test of the cost analysis in doing that. and i mean all kinds of cos. human life costs, treasure, effect on other countrie
appreciate it united states senate will be needing new name tags. three senators calling it quits giving the g.o.p. an opportunity to pick up some seats and maybe the majority. our political panel weighs in on their chances. >> and hillary clinton getting set to leave as secretary of state. now some of her supporters, they want her work recognized with a very special honor. we will tell what you it is and how they are going about it. >> and one state lawmaker taking no chances with the future of our currency laying out a plan if the federal reserve has a meltdown. does that make sense or is it it just wasted taxpayer dollars? red lobster's 30 shrimp. wow, that's a lot of shrimp. [ male announcer ] it's red lobster's 30 shrimp! for $11.99 pair any two shrimp selections on one plate! like mango jalapeƑo shrimp and parmesan crunch shrimp. just $11.99. offer ends soon! i'm ryon stewart, and i sea food diffently. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lin grow longer, his p
vulnerable democrats who had barely won their seats to expand the majority of the united states senate. >> and in the house. not the majority but to pick up eight seats? >> pick up eight seats after in 30 states, they elected republican governors and republican legislate temperatures and redistrict seats to make them. if that did not happen the republicans would not be in charge of the house but the resdrithing that happened in that made those seats safe or the kind of democratic year that we had in 2012 not enough to change the chamber. >> so they've got to do some rebranding and rethinking. maybe rethinking some of their policies, too. michael, great to visit with you? >> thanks. >> a lot of fun. thap for coming in. you know the political landscape. we appreciate that. we will get you back in soon. >> thanks. >> you can form michael on twitter at michaelpmeehan. see you soon. >> this is "the bill press show," live on your radio and current tv. [ music ] i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they c
rights in the united states senate. and in fact, i'm told by sources close to both senators that schumer is holding off on releasing his legislation, because he's making changes in the hopes of having a bipartisan bill with tom coburn, strictly on the issue of strength streng background checks. >> thanks very much for that report, dana. kate balduan joining us in "the situation room" as well. there's a lot of movement on this story. >> a lot of movement, a lot of conversations happening, at least, on this issue. and gabby giffords, and her husband, right after the hearing that dana bash was telling us about, she and her husband, mark kelly, they met with president obama at the white house, and the white house sent out this photo of them talking in the oval office. they were talking about, as he told you, the issue of gun control. >> and right after that meeting at the white house, mark kelly came here to "the situation room" and joined me. first of all, let's talk about your wife. how did she prepare for that? because that's really the first time we heard her speak like that over these p
was a united states senator? >> oh, i think he's going to be confirmed. i think he ought to be. he's the president's choice. i think that on some of the issues that people have raised concerns about, he's working for the president's policies, not his own. and i like the fact that he is a decorated war hero himself. going into a pentagon badly in need of more reform, more budget cutting, and who better to do that, than someone with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a
and really defanning, they sent over this horrible legislation. we stopped it all in the united states senate. but yeah, so the good news is that strong e.p.a. can really make progress. now, a lot of the special interests, the big oil the big coal, they'll scream and yell. and sue. but the fact is it's clear that the clean air act covers carbon pollution. now, the rest of it are smaller pieces like agriculture and about 7% of the emissions. and about 11% come from buildings. and i'm going to try to go after that 11%. in a good way. by essentially putting out sort of a revolving fund, people are older homes big landlords with older buildings can borrow, interest-free, to make these homes energy efficient. that's going to save a lot of pollution. it is going to stop a lot of pollution. i think we can actually do something here. now, we have a lot of tremendous amount of opposition. >> stephanie: yeah. and it is so surprising from the house republicans. senator, i could talk to you all morning. you have to tell me quickly about the line act before you go. there may be nothing else more important
to you the united states senator designate for massachusetts, mo cowan. [applause] >> thank you, governor. i'm honored and humbled by your action today. i pledge to you and the people the massachusetts that during this interim period, i will go to work every day with the needs and aspirations of our residents foremost in my mind. i know the people of massachusetts care about jobs, education, a portable, high- quality healthcare. i will work with those interests in mind just as you do every day and administration. i accept this temporary post confident in the knowledge and perspective i have acquired working closely with you and the lieutenant governor. you the commonwealth should be assured that i will go to that nation capital ever mindful of what is important to the people of massachusetts. also, congratulations on john kerry to his confirmation and they can for his years of commitment and service to the people of massachusetts. -- thank him for his years of commitment and service to the people of massachusetts. i aim to continue that work in the next coming months. because the work is
capital of the united states, and north the house or senate has held hearing but over 500 people died last year. they are weren't assault weapons. this is a serious question where we ought to have the courage to look at facts and not create propaganda. >> schieffer: i agree with you, miss blackburn that i think mental health needs to be a part of this. i think it's got to be a comprehensive plan of some sort. but i also wonder, i mean, don't we have to find some way just to reduce this access to guns that some of these people have? i mean,un if the guy had walked into the connecticut school with a baseball bat he could have put some bumpologist a couple of people's head, but i don't think that many people would have been killed. >> well, you know, i think again, you look at the safety issue. some of the school districts if my congressional district are looking at resource officers, and how they secure that environment. but, you know, the speaker is right. you look at what is actually causing the problem. this means you look at the weapons that are there. you do some hearings that are on, t
's the essence of our system, the checks and balances, and the advice and consent power of the united states senate is enormously important. >> but when you why in the cabinet the president, george bush also used this again and again. >> never when -- >> not -- >> the difference was -- >> different version of it. but all of them by the court have been ruled as unconstitutional. >> the difference was we were in recess. you know, had the president made an appointment the day before he did, he could have at least had a colorable argument. i mean it was the most phrasen thing i've ever seen. we weren't in recess. it was incredible. >> i don't know jay carney just reminds me of that movie how to cheat on your wife where the wife comes home and catches her husband with a girl and then she just gets dressed and leaves and the husband keeps saying no, there's no girl here. and finally the wife just gives up and says all right, forget it. i love jay carney. he's a straight face right in the camera. anyway, senator, thank you appreciate it. >> thank you. >> coming up the s&p on its longest winning str
of leadership i intend to provide as president of the united states. >> and, of course -- >> senator clinton, that's a clear swipe at you. >> really? >> back then, it was a very different relationship in the midst of an already bitter rivalry. >> while i was working on those streets, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. >> you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business in inner city chicago. >> but that relationship quickly changed. >> i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> just as hillary clinton showed her support for president obama, obama showed his faith in clinton. >> i have no doubt that hillary clinton is the right person to lead our state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda. >> what was hillary clinton's initial reaction when you told her, look, they're actually considering you as a possibility for secretary of state? >> she didn't believe it. >> reporter: he is one of clinton's closest aides. >> i e-mailed her, i think it was the friday after election day aft
or compromise in the united states as tremendously threatening. unless it really feels it has to, i don't think it is going to do that. that's why downplaying our military threat, that's why, the message sent by some of senator hagel's previous positions is so damaging to our overall policy of prevention. now with respect to this syria thing i think iran hopes again the israeli strike on syria if it happened could serve as distraction from what it is doing on the ground in iran. jenna: a lot to watch today, we'll continue to watch senator hagel's comments on iran as they happen in this hearing in washington, d.c. michael great to have you on the program as always. look to have you back. >> thank you, jenna, there are new details to share in the trial of the woman brutal aaccused murdering her ex-boyfriend. the gruesome evidence that sent one woman running out of the courtroom and left defendant jodi arias sobbing uncontrollably. >>> plus confirmation hearings underway right now for this man, former senator and defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. he is facing sharp questions from some of his
